Overview



While caring for his handicapped elderly father, the Author fills the long silences planning for a great walking journey. Requiring a means in which to carry his equipment, he constructs a Rickshaw from scrap metal and used bicycle parts on the floor of the small apartment.

When the time comes, the Author sets out on a trans-continental trek from Vancouver Island to Newfoundland, pulling all he owns behind him in the Rickshaw. Though epic in its physical and mental accomplishments, the journey is full of laughter and reflection.

At first only self interested, the Author soon finds he carries with him the infectious gift of inspiration. Keremeye'us is about simplicity, kindness and most of all it is about freedom in its most basic forms.

Meet the Author



Joseph Woodcock was born in Revelstoke, British Columbia between the great mountain ranges of the Selkirk and Monashee. His first memories are of glacier peaks, mountain meadows and the turquoise waters of the Illecillewaet cutting deep into the Columbia's icy grey.

A survivor of a turbulent childhood, Joseph Woodcock spent his youth as a birdwatcher, hiking the marshes and low hills of the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island. Able in part, to balance the effects of alcoholic parents against his love for the outdoors, reading and poetry he emerged into an early adulthood confident, optimistic and focused on enjoying all life has to offer.

Joseph Woodcock lives in Edmonton, Alberta and is a category winner of Poetry in the 2005 CBC Alberta Anthology. Keremeye'us is his first non-fiction work.
